Fortunately, this year I was determined not to let that happen. I am so glad I found this on idahostatesman.com and I thought I would share it with you. The competition starts tomorrow at the Bronco Stadium. Gates open at 1 pm where you can purchase your ticket. Adults are $7 and students and seniors are $5.
The first school performs at 2pm. The schools I am interested in watching start at 5:45. I hope that didn't sound snobbish. You can certainly go at 1:00 but it makes for a long day. The competition ends around 8:30, then the BSU Blue Thunder Marching Band performs, and then at 8:45ish the trophies are awarded. And they are big trophies. Click here to see a list of the participating high schools and what time they are performing, I guess competing.
If you go dress warm and bring lots of blankets.
Oh you are going to love this dumb factoid about myself. In 1992, I had the privilege of being part of the Centennial High School Marching Band and Drill team. When we competed in District III that year, we beat Capital High School!! Now that may not sound like it is a big deal, but I think they had, like, an 18 year winning streak that we had just broken. And that of course was our only goal. Beat Capital. And we did.
